|White Christmas Anniversary Edition, Blu Ray DVD|
"I'm dreaming of a White Christmas" with every blog post that I write.... Not dreaming of actually having a white Christmas but dreaming of the movie, White Christmas. Every year at Thanksgiving, my sister, Mickey, and I would begin reading the TV guide for a listing of our favorite Christmas movies. Topping the list was 'White Christmas.' We watched 'White Christmas' on a black-and-white, 20-inch TV every year, singing along and shedding a few tears at the end each time.
White Christmas was inspired by the song by the same name. The song debuted in another of our favorite movies, Holiday Inn. With a score written by Irving Berlin, the singing and dancing is what makes White Christmas a classic. As soon as White Christmas became available on VHS, it was on my list and given as a gift to my sister. A few years later, White Christmas in DVD form was under my tree. I just now noticed that the Anniversary Edition is available as a Blu Ray DVD - Santa? Mickey?
None of these compare to the spectacle my sister and I made singing about our sisterly love around the camp fire. No doubt our audience survived only because of the liquid refreshment they imbibed. My future brother-in-law could not believe our performance. Shaking his head, he remarked about our bravery (or was it stupidity?). I suppose we should feel lucky that there were no cameras present to permanently record our insanity.
With temperatures in the high 60s today, there is little chance of snow or even a Thanksgiving fire in the fireplace. Dreaming now of "Snow, Snow, Snow," another favorite song from White Christmas....
